Today deank has updated multiMAN once again to version 04.14.03 with the changes below, as follows:

Download: [Register or Login to view links] (3 MB) / [Register or Login to view links] (Mirror) / [Register or Login to view links] (Mirror #2)

Changelog:

  • Totally reworked 8x4 display mode (compatible with all themes)
  • Added "Reset USB" option to "Settings" to disable USB bus scan/reset
  • Added new translation labels
  • Included latest installPKG standalone application

Update: Shortly following, deank updated multiMAN once more to version 04.14.03 UPD CEX (20121202) fixing a bug in the game list view present when moving up/down (it just toggles between the top and bottom entry) stating:

Download: [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links]

You can take screenshots... Press the {PS} button, go to [Photo] column in real XMB -> Take Screenshot. I see that is wrong and got it fixed, thanks!

All fixed (both 8x4 and the list mode). The link in the post above is updated with the new one. Let me know how it works. You can also update online by starting mM while holding L2+R2 and update from the Home column.

Also when using 4x2, 8x4, 5x4x5 and XBDM modes and if you leave mM while in dash/home/settings it will return you to your games list on next launch External Game Data function is not to be used with all the games out there. Some work, some doesn't. I know exactly what the issue is, but it is impossible to overcome. Same goes for games with caching split files and/or using BD-Mirror function. I can give you the technical explanation if you wish but that won't solve anything.

Delete all installed game data, use a game disc, disable 'ext.game data' if enabled, disable direct-boot, and try again... Enable bd-mirror and try again... I have TFU (not the sith edition) but it works... It gives a black screen if you don't use game disc or without bdmirror.

How to turn off USB drive rearranging introduced in v4.14? Now i cannot set any games in MM

MM tells about disconnecting and reconnecting, then leave to XMB without game in disk and /app_home.. USB remains inaccessible till i turn PS3 off... I'm using Rebug 4.21 in DEX mode with BD emulation on USB stick. Before v4.14 everything was worked just fine...

so, how to turn this very bad new feature OFF??

btw, BD emulator on USB stick also disappears till i switch PS3 off. This is really bad bad bad feature!
